The data centre has come a very long way in a short space of time. The relaxed attitude toward power usage and real estate has disappeared, replaced by the need to reduce costs, whilst providing higher levels of availability and secure management access.
Black Box can help with high performance solutions for successful data centre design and management. With the latest cooling and monitoring soltions, power management systems and Local and Remote Management Devices, the Data Centre Manager is in a position to take control in achieving management objectives like:
TIA942 Data Centre Standards
The TIA942 Data Centre Standards Overview describes the requirements for a data centre and breaks down into four Tiers. These tiers are designed by the level of service they need to provide and the standard lays out everything from power requirements, to temperature control, and includes space utilisation, containment systems, data centre access, availability, cabling and back up systems amongst other requirements.
Green field sites provide the best opportunity to utilise the latest in cooling and power management technologies, reducing TCO whilst minimising OPEX. Integrating BMS and EMS, installing free air cooling, sensible heat management solutions and advanced power profiling solutions increase PUE and DCIE, and provide the ability to manage the entire real estate from a single console.
As experts of Data Centre CDM, Black Box are able to advise you on the benefits of all the major technologies employed from infrastructure choice and design, cabinet construction, through to advanced power profiling and remote server access.
